(a)  A report of a pesticide-related illness or injury shall be submitted to the Occupational and Environmental Epidemiology Branch on a form provided by or approved by the Branch according to these Rules. The form shall include the following information:

(1)           The name, address, telephone number, date of birth, race, ethnicity, gender, and occupation of the affected person;

(2)           The physical location of the affected person at the time of exposure to the pesticide, if known (be as specific as possible and include address and telephone number);

(3)           The name of the pesticide, if known; and

(4)           The name, address, and telephone number of the physician or medical facility.
